Nearly Big Bang time....

Should be an exciting weekend with Paul Beardmore back out in his turbo bug looking to use some of the cars 10-second quarter mile potential. Lisa Donlon will be out looking to be the first Gal to join the Rennwagen ET board in her 2276cc powered Bay. Kev Donlon is working hard to get his 64 Bug in one piece running the 2332 EFI/Turbo motor which pushed his Bay camper to a 14.3 ET, plus another two hot buses set to join the Rennwagen ranks with fighting talk already emanating from Mike Riley's Samba ready to take on the newcomers! Significant revisions to John Walklett's bug have also been made, so watch out for a serious tussle for the no.1 spot between John and Paul! Dave Wain will be looking for quicker times in his super straight black '66, now equipped with a new close ratio box so he'll be looking to beat his 13.6 from last season.

Bring it on!!!

Club members: please contact me for your club camping passes.
